Search­ing for de­scen­dants of my father’s peo­ple

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - OPINION -

SIR, I am a 75-year-old Ir­ish en­gi­neer liv­ing for many years in Ger­many and I am cur­rently work­ing on putting to­gether a fam­ily tree. I need some help and hope one of your read­ers can help me in my search for de­scen­dants of my father’s peo­ple.

My great-grand­fa­ther Michael Lyne (born 1840), mar­ried Mary (née Con­nor) Lyne in 1844 and they reared seven chil­dren in Quay­baun, Caragh. My grand­fa­ther Ti­mothy (born 1874) left Kerry late in the 1800s or early 1900s and mar­ried Mary Reynolds (born 1875) from Tooman, Co Leitrim in Glas­gow in 1906. My father, also Ti­mothy, was born in Limerick in 1912 be­fore the fam­ily re­turned to Scot­land some years later. I was born in Glas­gow in 1942.

Can any­one help me with de­tails on Ellen (born 1870); Mary (1870); Thomas (1872); John (1876); Michael (1878) or Nora (1882). They were all in­cluded on the 1901 / 1911 cen­sus re­turns for Quay­baun, Caragh.

My in­ter­est is purely per­sonal and with­out any com­mer­cial or in­her­i­tance im­pli­ca­tions.
